The Cedarville Library started in October 1966 as part of the Ozarks Regional Library System. Jane Robinson was the first librarian, opening the library from 2-6pm on Thursdays. The first building, previously Cedarville’s one-chair barber shop, was a concrete 10 x 15 room with no bathroom or water. Carl Neal had a grocery store next to the library allowing the library to plug into his building, so the library would have electricity. The library rented butane bottles for a gas stove for heat. A fan was the only way to keep cool during the summer. The library would stay in this location for 31 years. In 1997, the library moved out of the 10 x 15 building to a room in the renovated Old Rock Schoolhouse.  In April, 2011 the library moved to its new 3600 square ft. building, located just down the hill from where they were located.
